**(Calls cost 7p per minute plus your phone company's access charge)
Bordered by the Atlantic Ocean and located in southwestern Europe is Portugal. The country boasts incredible value for money in amongst it's amazing history and culture.
Praia da Vitoria is one of only two municipalities on the island, and the civic hub of the town centre is a short drive south of the airport. Praia da Vitoria is home to many of the island's major attractions, including the cave complex known as Algar do Carvao. Hiring a car from Lajes Airport also gives you comfortable and swift access to Angra do Heroismo, the island's other municipality and home to the imposing mountain known as Monte Brasil.
Visitors to Terceira, who are landing at Lajes will often place attractions like the Praia dos Biscoitos at the top of their itinerary; the volcanic hot springs here are legendary, set amongst the drama of the Atlantic Ocean and framed by jet black lava formations. Those hiring a car from the airport can head towards the heart of the island and discover why the cave formations known as Algar do Carvao attract so much attention - the Gruta Natal Lava Tube is close by and equally as appealing.
Head south to Monte Brasil and enjoy the wonderful panoramas of Angra, along with unparalleled views of the entire southern aspect of Terceira. If you decide to rent a car from Lajes Airport, visit Angra and check out the flagship avenue known as Rua da Se, for its striking architecture and fabulous plant life.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
